Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Japanese-Mongolian Relations, 1873-1945 Faith, Race and Strategy contains the table of contents, the preface, conventions abbreviations, timeline, maps and illustrations. Mongolia has usually been regarded by historians of modern Japan as a minor arena of Japanese activity on the Chinese continent in the years before 1945. Yet the history of Japanese activity there is just as rich a field of enquiry as corresponding activity in Manchuria has proved to be. Japanese soldiers, businessmen, religious leaders, scholars and others were engaged in a wide array of projects in Mongolia in the modern period. 'Inner Mongolia' in the south, by contrast, had been ruled by a disparate group of Mongol princes since before the rise of the Ch'ing dynasty. Mongolia attracted Japanese leaders and various kinds of activists for a number of reasons and Mongolia's military significance has been well recognized.

Keywords: Ch'ing dynasty; Inner Mongolia; Japanese activity; Japanese soldiers; Manchuria
